My 11th grade trigonometry teacher made a secret deal with me: he promised to give me Cs if I promised not to sign up for his AP Calculus class my senior year. It was a fabulous tradeoff, and since then math and I have respected this non-agression pact to the letter. Thankfully we have guys like Colin Wyers and Tom Tango around to pick up the slack:

Colin does all sorts of unspeakable things to Microsoft Excel in an effort to determine whether preventing a run and scoring a run contribute equally to winning a ballgame;
Tangotiger furthers the Tim-Raines-is-a-Hall-of-Famer argument by comparing him to various leadoff hitters, number three hitters, and Hall of Famers, concluding “[a]ny time we compare Raines to a reasonable group of Hall of Famers, we always end up with the same thing: Raines is just like them.” That’s great and all, but tell me Tom: how much was he feared? Yeah, I thought so.
Meanwhile, over at Fantasy Focus, Jonathan Halket talks about why keeper leagues kinda suck. Sounds like someone had a bad draft his first year. As Roy Hobbs said, some mistakes in life you never stop paying for, Jon.
